Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2752807A1] The system is provided for helping a driver approach a stop (14) or kerb in a vehicle (10), especially a public transport vehicle. The system includes a number of straight lines (16) marked on the roadway at the entrance of a bus station and which follows a path to the required bus stop. A device on board the vehicle such as a video camera points forward and is used to view the lines (16) and the image is then used by a processing device to apply a couple using a motor to the steering column in order to guide the vehicle to its stop. On either side of the straight line markings are additional straight lines (R1,R2) which are used to assist in determining deviation of the vehicle path from the desired path and make necessary corrections.
